Shaky Effect without Plugins

nirvanray schrieb am 14.08.2014 um 11:15 Uhr

Hello Friends,
These days we often see in many videos (mainly promos or trailers) where the screen or an image / text shake-----like some wobbly camera. Can someone please guide me how to do the same?
I am aware that such things can be done by Adobe After Effects and also by the Blue FX Motion Effects plug-ins. 

But can such shaky effects be undertaken ourely by our very own MAGIX editing software (Maybe through Size / Position).

My previous attachment was not working so here is the youtube link.

Thanks for your kind help.

Anirban RAy,

 I'dsuggest you  start with the 'Earthquake' effects available from the 'Movement template' section of the 'Movement effects' window. If after applying the effect you switch to plain 'Movement effects' you will see that a series of key frame animation points have been applied which you can then alter if needed.

I hope this will get you started; I could not view your example here. :-(

Hi Anirban,

You can also simulate a earthquake effect by using key frames and then just moving the picture or title around.  The plug ins are faster and easier to use but you can do it manually if you choose to.  I personally would not bother with key frames because it takes a long time and a lot of adjustment to get it the way you want. Much faster and easier to use the New Blue plug in.

I looked at the video you sent and that is not a earthquake effect.  Most of what I saw are slight zoom and blurr effects.  MEP can definitely do this as well but again you will need to use key frames and use zoom in and out as well as blurr to get this to work for you.
